EncrypGen provides next generation software for genomic data empowering patients and donors, facilitating health, business, and science in a safe environment.
“The Gene-Chain is a blockchain (a cryptographically encoded ledger) to mediate the searching, storing, buying and selling of genomic data. It is a private network, meaning that to fully participate by searching, one must buy a node through a license, enhancing security and privacy of the genetic data on this network. Anyone is free to safely store their data on the Gene-Chain in order to share with their doctors without any charge — for free. They may choose to allow scientists to search for and buy their data, putting the individual in charge of their genetic data, providing custody and control, as well as payment for use, for one of our most personal assets. The Gene-Chain is a first-of-its kind application of blockchain technology to genomic science.”
